This year is 2 years since I asked if anyone wanted to send me a block for my birthday so I could make a quilt from them. The out pouring was amazing, and I am humbled. I also got a LOT of blocks.. like..... Continue reading

The 4th block in our year long journey of Farmer's Market quilt making is the yummy, and delicious Giant Strawberry! When you go to the market, the fresh strawberries are so fragrant. AND gorgeous to look at! I think they may be one of my favorite fruits (next to a pineapple, which i don't REALLY see in my Farmer's markets!) All through my book I give you tip and trick that I do to make my fusible applique easy and fun. Here is one of my tips- When cutting out the center, I cut thru the line to get to... Continue reading

My friend Amanda Murphy is so talented! She designs fabrics, digital designs and writes great and informative books! Her newest book is now out and I can't wait to share it with you! So many of us when we first learn to quilt our own quilts create a 'go to' set of shapes and ways to get our quilts done. Amanda wrote this great design book that helps you break down your quilt top and look at it in pieces so you can develop a new set of shapes to quilt on it. I love that approach! It is going...
